HC Deb 03 March 1987 vol 111 c570W
67. Mr. Cunliffe

asked the Paymaster General how many staff are to be allocated to job-broking activities in jobcentres and how many to providing assistance for the long-term unemployed.

Mr. Lee

Staff are allocated to programme activities at national and regional level rather than to specific activities within jobcentres or to locations. Managers use the staff available to deliver the various jobcentre services effectively and economically, taking into account local circumstances.
